This salty seaside pool is located on the very edge of Cremorne Point. You’ll stroll down past leafy flowering gums, before arriving at the harbour edged pool – panoramic views of the city skyline and bobbing boats are contrasted with the pool’s well worn rope fencing and aquamarine lining. Splay out on the timber decking for a sun bake or take a dip – the water is above the harbour line so it gets cleaned and refilled weekly (make sure you check the cleaning schedule before venturing to it). The pool originally was just a rock pool, before being turned into a proper 33-metre swimming pool by locals and the council in the 1920s.
